About
Rhyl SeaQuarium has an open seafront location and sits on the beautiful North Wales coastline. We would like to welcome all new explorers to join us on a voyage of discovery as we travel beneath the waves, from tranquil fresh waters to the cold depths of the abyss. Along the way we will encounter the strangely shaped sturgeon, as well as sharks found off our very own coast and rays that glide effortlessly through the water. We will also find solitary lobsters, conger eels and mystical axolotls before entering the Lethal Reef, home to some of the most poisonous animals on our planet. These are just a few of the amazing, strange and beautiful animals that await us on our adventure.

Seal demonstration
Jul 2021 • Family
Paid £25 for 2 adults and the seal demonstration. Aquarium doesn’t take long to get around 30/45 minutes at most. Demonstration was brilliant though. Really informative and funny. Felt a few too many people let in at once though as it could get quite busy in places

Not worth the money
Jun 2021
Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. As you arrive you can see the seals playing about in thier tanks. Then breakfast is brought to you which was actually quite nice. As you’re having breakfast, the staff feed the seals and do a talk about them. Once this is finished you’re free to explore the aquarium before the public arrive, which was about 2 minutes after the talk.
It states there is a seal feeding experience, however there isn’t.
To be honest we felt a bit robbed. £25.00 pp is way too steep, you’re pretty much paying £17.50pp for breakfast. Better off paying normal
Admission and binning off the breakfast.

Oh and the seagulls dive bomb and fly around you trying to steal the seals food.

Good attraction for all ages, excellent seal show
May 2021 • Couples
We visited on a Sunday afternoon as a group of two adults. We booked in advance online, and spent around 2 hours here. The value is not great - it’s £10 for a basic adult ticket, to look at exhibits which would take around 30-45 minutes to view. However, we also added on the seal show for an extra £2.50 per person, and this made our overall visit good value. The seal show is in an open air auditorium, and you get a seat, socially distanced of course. We watched two different seals perform tricks and the commentary was funny and informative. You can stay longer after the show and watch the seals in the pool up close. The other exhibits are interesting eg the sting rays and the underwater viewing tunnel but you can do this part of the attraction fairly quickly. There is a cafe on site and public toilets. Overall, it’s worth a visit if you are spending some time in Rhyl and have not visited this attraction before.

Overall decent attraction for family with kids
Jun 2021 • Family
Overall it is a decent attraction in the centre of a small town Rhyl is.
We went early June with 7 and 11 yo boys.
The worst point about it is the part at the entrance with tortoises and Sonic claw machines right next to them. The glass panels are covered in limescale above the water level making it impossible for a little child to see anything above the water level. The terrarium is full of artificial plants making the experience unpleasant. But on top of that are the two claw machines with retro tones which are same loud as the atmospheric music played in the background.
Anyway the rest of the Seaquarium is a nice size set of rooms and corridors with quite plenty of sea creatures to watch. There's a room with large tank, opened at the top where you can see big size stingrays coming very close to the surface.
Underwater walkway is a must in this type of attraction and this one is rather short but enjoyable.
The show with fur seals is a must to watch and very funny as long as the seals are in a good mood ;-)
Overall it's a smaller version of sea life attraction but this makes it less commercial and more relaxing.
I think it is well worth what you pay for the ticket.

Great on a wet day
May 2021
With Covid you have to book, difficult times for the staff who I must compliment, very friendly.
Only a short wait before going in.
Yes its nearly £10 a head our grandson is under 3 so free.
With Covid and booking it controlled the amount of customers so no big question and tail backs.
We sat in the wind and rain and watched the seal show, OK its not Florida but it was enervating and educational.
e bought two coffees kids mea and a cake, very reasonable.
We had our monies worth on a very wet and windy day.
Great to support them as they have had such a difficult time, thanks all.

We really enjoyed ourselves
Sep 2020
Okay yes this is not on a scale of the sea life centres but actually we thought the value for money was pretty good! We didn’t do the sea lion show so can’t comment on that and it wasn’t busy when we went to super easy to social distance.
It’s not huge and I do think the place needs a bit of TLC but we had a good morning there

Not worth the money
Sep 2020 • Family
We paid over £50 for 3 kids and 2 adults. In and out in 30 mins didn't even get a choice of watching a sea lion show as they are only shown at 11:30 or 3:30. The place just isn't big enough and far too many people crammed into a small space, better off going for a walk on the beach with a bucket and a net!!
